09 Dec Beer Release #269. They’re playing our song. A New England IPA.
Fruity, sweet and citrusy. Big hop aromas of stone fruit, pineapple and zest with a blend of sweet fruit tones make this 7,5% NEIPA dangerously easy to drink. Golden Naked Oats leave a grainy sweetness, and a smooth, velvety mouthfeel.
This is a collaboration that was born out of a mutual appreciation for each others beer. Their genuine appreciation of our recipes and really liking our beers meant a lot to us. This feeling was of course mutual (how could you not like them or their beers?) and that’s where the collaboration began.
Finback’s New England IPA’s are what put them on the map, so when Anthony came over we picked his brains and together we made a recipe that challenged us and showcased what their best at.
They’re playing our song
This is a New England IPA (NEIPA) where we used Sabro hops for the very first time. This beer was brewed at our brewery in Gothenburg and is our first collaboration with the world-beater Finback, all the way from Queens, NYC.
We met Anthony and Basil from Finback at previous festivals. There was music and a lot of dancing involved, which inspired the name and label.
The story goes that there’s two guys robbing a bank. When they hear the police sirens the one turns to the other and says, “They’re playing our song”.
If you’re one of the lucky ones to have hung out with Adam at festivals, chances are you may already know where the name comes from. “They’re playing our song” is something Adam frequently says at festivals, every time he hears a Police siren. Same joke every time. Actually, it’s funnier when you hear the sirens and you know it’s coming.
The label is inspired by sound waves, and the logo from the collaborating brewery Finback, which is a Humpback Whale breaching. The Spotify code can be scanned in the Spotify App (or click here) to play a police siren.
We are Beerbliotek
A Craft Brewery founded in Gothenburg (Sweden) by four friends from different parts of the world. Our brewing philosophy is simple… keep brewing new beers that we, ourselves, would want to drink.
Our name is derived from the Latin word bibliothēca, meaning library, or a collection of books. A Beerbliotek, for us, would then mean a beer library, or a collection of beer.
